                   General Assumptions for Financial
                               Policy
      due to global economic crisis and decrease in IEEE
       financial reserves, introduction of new strategy of
       economizing is required
      stronger financial support on concrete projects rather
       than meetings for meetings sake
      introducing guidelines to optimize travel expenditures
      face-to-face SubCommittee meetings to be held
       max. twice/year, joint with R8 Commmittee meeting
       regular teleconferences are strongly recommended
